ok so browsing through all the threads on here as well as some other forums it seems as though some arguements seem to keep showing up over and over. I thought it would be interesting to list them all, maybe we can create a sticky for each of them and link all the threads related to them so that they can serve as a central point of reference for anyone new to the board

Disc brakes vs V Brakes
Hardtails vs FS
XC vs DH
Clipless vs Flat pedals
Helmet vs No helmet
Flat Bars vs Risers
Flat Bars vs Drop bars
Rigid vs Suspension fork
26ers vs 29ers
Gears vs SS
Steel vs Al
Carbon vs All other materials
Race vs ride for fun
Lycra vs Baggy shorts

Anymore

That is a fantastic idea.

A batching of related threads might show the transition of perspectives on a particular issue. It is kind of a kick to see riders resist the latest in technological advances as needless changes or marketing spin only to find such changes become part of the norm. It is also interesting to see riders progress through a technological contiuum and end up back at the beginning; rigid singlespeed, for example.
On the other hand new threads on these topics tend to reveal the "truth of the day."

haha I don't think it's an issue of superiority as it is just preference

FWIW I prefer Vs :)

Helmet VS no helmet

this is an easy one. there is no disadvantage to wearing a helmet. besides a being little hotter. but its worth it having one on
